We Take A Look Inside The Diamond Foundry - Could They Have Your Gem Waiting?
It’s a fact. Diamonds are one of the hardest and most durable minerals on earth. With the rise in popularity of sustainably grown diamonds, such as those from the Diamond Foundry, there’s now even more to these beauties than meets the eye! And that’s saying something, considering they are known for their irresistible sparkle!
Finding the perfect diamond…
For over a century, we have been experimenting with the technology used to grow diamonds above ground, rather than the more traditional (but less sustainable) below ground, mining method. But it’s only been in the last decade that scientists have discovered how to truly create the perfect gem. Real diamonds. And yes, you guessed it, they are made in a lab!
But don’t be fooled, they are not inferior in quality. In fact, they are identical in structure. A lab grown diamond is 100% pure carbon (like an earth mined diamond) with the exact same optical, chemical, thermal, and physical features as its traditional counterpart.
And these man made diamonds have even more benefits. Not only are they easier on your wallet, and better for the environment, they are now being used to advance technology too.
How can diamonds shape our future?
Sustainably grown diamonds, like mined diamonds, rank at the top of the Mohs Scale of Hardness. On a scale of 1 - 10, they are a 10. This means that alongside being made into sparkly diamond engagement rings, they can also be used to conduct heat and are now being used in data centers, 5G and even electric vehicles.
With the processes of diamond manufacture rapidly changing and their uses becoming more diverse, the future of the industry is growing and becoming more sustainable. And Diamond Foundry is at the forefront. Creating lab grown diamonds that are stunning, affordable and free from the environmental pitfalls of mining. In fact, they can grow up to 1 million carats of gem quality diamonds every year and still remain completely carbon neutral.
